DAG for GO:0032153id: GO:0032153

name: cell division site
namespace: cellular_component
def: "The eventual plane of cell division (also known as cell cleavage or cytokinesis) in a dividing cell. In Eukaryotes, the cleavage apparatus, composed of septin structures and the actomyosin contractile ring, forms along this plane, and the mitotic, or meiotic, spindle is aligned perpendicular to the division plane. In bacteria, the cell division site is generally located at mid-cell and is the site at which the cytoskeletal structure, the Z-ring, assembles." [GOC:bf, GOC:imk, GOC:krc, GOC:ns, PMID:12101122, PMID:15380095, PMID:16983191, PMID:18165305]
comment: Note that this term refers to the future site of division in a cell that has not yet divided.
